New for 2018, Being Brunel explores the life and legacy of Isambard Kingdom Brunel. It brings together for the first time the world's most significant collection of one of engineering's greatest minds.
Brunel was one of the greatest engineers of the 1800s. He built bridges, tunnels, ships and railways that were longer, faster and bigger than anything seen before. Brunel was also an innovator, a leader, a dreamer and an artist. He was extraordinary, but he was also human. He had many faults and failures, but he never gave up. This is the Brunel you will meet when visiting Being Brunel.
Entry to Being Brunel is included in the admission price for Brunel's SS Great Britain which gives free unlimited return visits for a year. A separate ticket is not required. See their tickets and prices here.
Stop off for a refreshment in their new café, The Dockyard, situated in Being Brunel.
